Easiest to take them off the machine. The bigger compressor you have the better (more air flow and pressure). Try to get the bead on one side to jam against the wheel in the bead area. Sometimes turning the tire similar to screwing it onto the wheel will help. Then try to pull the other side of the tire up against it's side while trying to inflate. Easier to do with two people but I never have help. Sometimes a nylon tie down wrapped around the middle of the tread and ratcheted down some will cause the tire beads to expand up against the rim. If you can't get it try to take out the valve stem core (tool is cheap from auto parts store) as you'll get more air in quicker.
If all else fails you can use starting fluid. You need almost NO starting fluid for that size tire. Barely squirt anything in there and then toss a match at it. You can use a BBQ lighter but it's best to toss a match. I've done car, riding mower and snow blower tires this way. It's NOT the safest way to do it but it works. Always use the least you can as you can always ad a bit more on the next try. What you don't want to do is hold the trigger down and spray a bunch in and damage the tire or blow it off the rim entirely.

SOURCE: Craftmans Snow Thrower 247887001 Tire Flat. How to Refill.

The tires are probably tubeless type. If the bead is broken ( not sealed to the rim) the tire will not inflate. Taking the weight off the tire will some times allow the bead to seal against the rim and allow tire to be inflated. You can also put a small ratchet strap around the tread of the tire and tighten it up. This will squash the tire and make the bead seal up. MAKE SURE to loosen strap as soon as bead seals and tire begins to inflate. Hope this helps.

Will snowblower attachment 190-832 fit a 2006 yard machine lawn tractor


Most of the Yard Machine lawn tractors have a welded tube front axle and they are not strong enough to handle the weight of a snow thrower.

The snow thrower is generic but you will need the correct mounting brackets and center frame for your tractor. Go to the agrifab website, call the help number and ask them if they have a mounting kit for your tractor. You will need the model number off the nameplate on your tractor frame for them to help you.

Air pump fits on front tire valve, but not on rear. won't catch valve stem...both are schrader valves. help???


The tube has rotated on the rim. You will need to let the air out of the inner tube then "break the bead " on the tire to free the tire from the rim. With the tire edges now separated from the rim you can squeeze the tire and tube together as you turn the tire in the direction needed to rotate the inner tube back into alignment with the hole in the rim. Now refill the inner tube to 5 lbs less than the max pressure noted on the sidewall of the tire. Low tire pressure is what allowed the tire to spin on the rim, taking the tube with it.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Change the spark plug being sure to set the spark plug gap as recommended in the owner's manual. Then clean or change the air filter. Finally use new high test gasoline. good luck.
